  • Is it a cool thing to see? Yes. Are there better places to stop along the coast? Yes. I may be biased because I live near a place like this on Lake Superior where the water drops through the bottom....  more

  • Thought this would be a quick stop, but we stayed a while. Great views, great path for short hike which took you out on rocks. Thor's well was awesome and we wasn't even there at high tide!

  • Just stunning! Check the tide tables before planning your trip so you can see it during high tide, it will absolutely not disappoint! The trail down was paved and easily walked. There are stairs to get onto the the cliff which is pretty easy to navigate. There were plenty of kids as well as dogs (on leash). We absolutely plan on coming back!
  • Yes, do visit. The parking can get full which means parking past the site and walking back to site along highway (carefully). This is an exploratory stop of interesting things to see and Thor's Well happens to be the star of the show but not the only thing to see. Enjoyed rock hopping. And listening to the powerful waves. Made an awesome video of the well but unable to post sadly.
  • There is handicapped accessibility at the top with great views. You can walk down the path for a closer look. It was an easy pull off on the road.
  • Amazing natural and man made wonders. Thor’s well which seems to drain the ocean and a shooting spray under the 100 year old bridge. A must if you like to soak in the majestic ocean views and walk on rocks to enjoy the spectacles of ocean. Thors well is a bit of an adventure to find but accessible if you keep walking further towards the ocean. My 5 year and 10 year old had so much fun jumping on the rocks.
  • Unbelievable. We weren't supposed to take the route along the coast that hits this spot but accidentally did and so glad for it!! It is something we can't even describe in words. Like being in another planet. Take the time to explore here, wear the right shoes.
